The current context of social policy is one in which many of the old certainties of the past have been eroded. The predominantly inward-looking, domestic preoccupation of social policy has made way for a more integrated, international and outward approach to analysis which looks beyond the boundaries of the state. It is in this context that this Handbook brings together the work of key commentators in the field of comparative analysis in order to provide comprehensive coverage of contemporary debates and issues in cross-national social policy research.

As it becomes increasingly evident that the European project is in the middle of a multidimensional crisis, this chapter forefronts a perspective that forefronts (dis)integration, scale and disjuncture in order to enhance our understanding of the dynamics of crisis, resistance and social change in a European context. The chapter locates the discussion of European (dis)integration as part of a global organic and utilizes the concepts of scale and disjuncture across three dimensions; the social, political and economic. The chapter argues that the dynamics of and citizen responses to the multidimensional crisis suggest the need for the reassertion and rebalancing of the ‘social’ and solidarity within and between European institutions, a scalar reconnect between political elites, national governments and citizens, and a reassessment of policies which are further embedding market-enhancing strategies, competition and self-responsibility in everyday life.
